Girl Pulling The Cloth Over Her Head

Girl smiling

The girl smiled

Shot in the city of Malda, India.

The little girl covered herself with cloth except for her face. When I focused on her, she smiled at me bashfully. She had pierced ears and nose. Like other females in India, she pierced on the left nostril.

It was said that the left nostril was one of the acupressure points on the female body. It might be a reason to see many women piercing only on the left nostril. So it didn't mean the woman was a Punk in Southern Asian countries.
